Jets To Return To Cortland For 2014 Training Camp
The Jets are headed back to SUNY Cortland this July, marking the fifth straight year the college will host training camp for Rex Ryan and company.
A renewal of their agreement came this week, which dates back to 2009. It will not only give local fans a firsthand look at the team’s new acquisitions – including Eric Dekker and Chris Johnson – but the anticipated QB competition between sophomore Geno Smith and free-agent pickup Michael Vick.
The draw of having an NFL club’s camp in town also provides a significant boost to Cortland County, a study by SUNY Cortland faculty found.
The estimated 21,000 spectators created a $3.7 million economic impact in 2013 alone, and has generated nearly $20 million since the agreement began.
